Organic Brownies

There is nothing better than homemade brownies. This is by far my favorite recipe and the best brownies I've ever had. They are rich, chewy, buttery, and melt in your mouth devine! Hope you and your family enjoys as much as mine. Be sure to use Organic Valley butter because it makes a huge difference in taste!
10 TBS. Organic Valley Butter
1 1/4 organic cane sugar
3/4 cup organic fair trade cocoa
2 TBS organic vanilla
2 TBS water
2 large cage-free organic eggs (keep in fridge until time to use)
1/3 cup organic stone wheat flour
2 TBS organic coconut flour (optional)
1 cup organic walnuts

Heat to 325F and place rack in bottom 1/3 of the oven for top crispness. Place foil over 8X8 pan (or use foil heart pan like pictured) and grease with butter.
In a medium saucepan, heat 10 TBS of butter on medium heat. The butter will begin to foam and then bits of brown will rise to the top- when it stops foaming take off heat. Immediately add sugar, cocoa, vanilla, water. Wait 5 minutes and then add 1 egg at a time. Stir until silky smooth and add flour. After mixed, add walnuts.
*See how it looks different than regular brownie mix. You want it thick and shiny- not runny.
Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick is clean.

  1. Once you take your brownies out of the oven do you put them on a cooling rack? If so how long do you leave them before you can lift the parchement paper out of the pan?
